Cow Moose with Calf
This cow moose and calf were seen from the Denali Highway not far from the Tangle River Inn. Since this was a telephoto shot, they were farther away than they seem. This explains why the animals seemed oblivious to our presence. The scene is idyllic, but a cow moose with a calf is fiercely protective and very dangerous. A visitor to Denali National Park was killed by a cow moose with a calf. These were the first moose I ever saw.
